Cheese & Chutney Dip

Cheese & Chutney Dip

Chutney's use in the United States dates back to before the 20th century and it was a culinary gift brought from India. Immediately after its arrival in the States, the sweet, tangy condiment became a hit when paired with cheese, as we can see in many historical canapés recipes. As soon as dips became popular, creating a bowl to pair with some buttery crackers was a no-brainer.

Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
